Abstract

In this paper, an experiment has been used to study the effect of pyrolysis stage (from injection to combustion) to dioxin exhaust from diesel engine. The characteristics of diesel fuel pyrolysis have been applied in order to calculate the mean molecular weight in varied temperatures and measure the concentration of inorganic chlorine (HCl). On the other hand, measuring the chlorine content of these particles after diesel pyrolysis enables researchers to find out the pyrolysis temperature that has the lowest possibility to produce dioxin. Additionally, the post-pyrolysis carbon particle diameter has been observed through electronic microscope so as to evaluate the combustion condition of the combustion stage. Result from this study would be helpful for researchers to understand the probability of dioxin formation.
